Q: Chinese tourists exporting mainland culture

http://shanghaiist.com/2015/10/05/chinese_tourist_burberry_bicester_vill...

 

 

A Chinese tourist helps her kid s**t on the street right outside a luxury store while a public bathroom is only feet away. This behavior is really emblematic of the rotten selfishness and pampering of children that are so prevalent in the mainland. Who cares if anyone else has to step in that pile of shit or clean it up? How could you ever discipline that little prince and tell him to hold it for 2 minutes until you find a bathroom? But he might feel sad and needs to poo now! I'm pretty sure the mainlander didin't pick up after her little darling defecated either because surely someone with an orange vest will do that for her, right?

 

For about the fifth time in the last month I've walked into my building elevator and there was a nice puddle of urine on the floor. Now, I"ll give the residents of my building the benefit of the doubt and assume it was dog urine and not human piss but that doesn't excuse the owner one bit. How about cleaning up after your animal after it soils a fucking elevator where people can't walk around the puddle? I've spent over 15 years in a major US city riding elevators every day and have never once encountered excrement. Actually once when I was a kid my family dog pissed in the elevator so what did we do? We took the elevator to our floor, held the door open and cleaned the dog piss up and sprayed the elevator with air freshener because we actually took responsibility for our actions and considered that it might not be convenient for a building full of people to step in dog piss on the way to work or coming back from grocery shopping.

 

Funny looking at the comments on the article I posted with the wumaos saying "but people get shot in America and you're complaining abou a kid pooing!" Typical reaction, deflect, deflect, change the subject. I'd be happy to engage in that conversation when the article is about guns or mass shootings. But seriously what is wrong with these people? Yeah , yeah stores benefit a ton from tourist dollars and dealing with their behavior is probably a small price to play when considering the economics of the situation but the fact that you spend money does not give you the right to act like savages!

 

And if your kid reaaaallly has to go, yea I get it once in a blue moon you can't find a bathroom. But why in God's name do you have to do it in the middle of the sidewalk right in front of a gym with tons of people coming in and out? Yeah, that would be my gym. Would it be too hard on the little princess to find a bush to soil and not do it RIGHT IN THE MIDDLE OF A FUCKING SIDEWALK ON A CROWDED STREET. Barbarism.

That's what I will never understand about this place and culture.... you can have a clean, civilized bathroom just meters away but people will still choose to do something like crap in a cup in the middle of a restaurant in front of everyone and leave it on the table.

 

I get it when there is no toilet close and you gotta go, or if the toilet is absolutely filthy and the smell makes you gag before you even walk in the door but if there is a reasonable better option why would people choose not to use it?

It's funny you should post this. Within the last hour or so, I popped into McDonalds. Right opposite to the place I was sat, there was a woman with a kid. The kid could not be described as a toddler. I would guess he was about four or five years old.

 

In the middle of a packed restaurant, she held a cup (the type that McDonalds soft drinks are served in) under the kid while he did a dump. The best part about it is the customer toilets were no more than about five metres away. She then crumpled the cup and deposited it in the table in front of her.

I don't know, but in my 4 years here, I have never witnessed anything as gross as described here. For that matter, I have never witnessed anything gross, with regards to the toilet. Yes, I have seen kids pissing on the street, a few. Yes I have pissed on the street.

Obviously, if there is a better option it is just silly, but sometimes there is not a better option.

 

I really think this is a non issue ....  it is not as prevalent as it might seem to be on this site.

The town where I live has an app. One of the new functions is "tour bus complaints."  There have been enough problems with tour buses blocking residential driveways, letting the engine idle over 4 minutes* and ravaging public bathrooms that people can now file reports right from their smart phones and tablets.

 

Can you guess which country the tourists, the drivers and the tour company owners all come from? I'll give you a hint. During Golden Week the number of complaints has increased sharply.

 

* Apparently they want to bring their lovely air quality with them.

no matter what, nothing will never beat the Louvre in Paris with a sign written entirely in Chinese: "no spitting or defecation allowed here" or words to that effect.

My impression is you've cut and paste some of my earlier posts.

While driving home from Turpan yesterday we encountered a delay on the highway and the stupid ugly woman in the high heeled boots and ridiculous hairdo assisted the ten or twelve year old boy to have a crap about ten feet away from our passenger side window.

As he was shitting on the ground by the side of the road the traffic started up again and the depraved woman and deprived kid had to stop mid shit and run back to their car in order not to lose their spot in the traffic jam.

What didn't surprise me about this event was that I was the only person in proximity that was calling the grubs grubs.  Actually I don't even think anyone else took any notice of this animalistic behaviour at all.

I now know that BGHAL is totally blind, as there cannot be any other reason he doesn't see these filthy bastards shitting and pissing all over the place every day.

i once saw a (western) guy urinating outside a restaurant in Hangzhou and whilst it was pretty close to the window with diners inside it was not actually close enough to have defecated the restaurant premises.

 

It caused uproar, with someone from the restaurant storming out and confronting the guy at which point it did look like physical altercation would ensue.

 

the guy's point was along the lines of "when in Rome etc" which from a 'certain point of view' is a valid one to make.

 

So the question has to be asked: is it ok for Chinese to defecate in public but not anyone else?

It would seem though, regardless of how bad the behaviour and antisocial habits might be, money is still the overriding factor:

The real question is "were they baptized?" because if they weren't it's a moot point because the baby would be going to hell as a sinner.

I just come back from my wife's hometown in anhui. Not a poor place but not definitely not affluent. It was the first time we see the nephew only half a year old. Even my wife's sister Let's the baby urinate in the trashcan right in the living room next to the coffee table rather than take him to the coffee just 10 metres away. I don't blame them as it is just what they think as acceptable, along with spitting, smoking in the presence of non smokers in doors.

We were playing mahjiang and even then She let him urinate under the table! They said they will just mop it up later......

Seven reasons why chinese are the most undesirable tourists https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=VHuuW3lS7HY

 

These are the observable, surface behaviors only. In most cases, the filth in the psyche is far more hideous and disgusting than the physical poop.

A:Wow, you really found that nitpicky talking point that elevates the fossil fuel industry to the same level as the interests of humanity. Isn't it all just a "liberal" scam, if you don't look too closely at the absence of logic? "Yes, it must be. My masters are hinting that that's what I should believe!"

You've made it clear you are consciously ignoring the pollution and global warming. Since your handlers, the conservative establishment whose dismantling of the carbon credit system and environmental destruction you choose to ignore, have made it clear you should bark in this direction, you are eager to please!

Such an admirably domesticated, dependable, subservient human. I'm sure your handlers will throw you a bone while they bring home the bacon for themselves. You're so obedient, you deserve a doggie cookie! Who's a good boy? You are! Yes, you are. U-S-A! Woof woof woof! -- coineineagh
